    Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation (University of Colorado, Boulder)

    Our Best and Most Lasting Gift: The Universal Features of Meditation
    a lecture by Paul R. Fleischman, M.D.
    delivered at the University of Colorado, Boulder

    This talk was originally written in response to an invitation from multiple sponsors at Yale University. Various versions of this talk were given at Northeastern University, New York University, The University of Washington, Seattle; The University of British Columbia, Vancouver; the University of Colorado, Boulder; Harvard University, and Brown University, as well as at Dhamma Patapa Vipassana Center, Georgia.

    This particular version of the talk was recorded at the University of Colorado, Boulder and is meant as an introductory talk that uses no technical language, and that contains explanations that require no previous biological knowledge. (Please understand that due to recording problems, the question-and-answer session ends abruptly.)

    Another recording of this talk from the University of Washington, Seattle is geared more towards a university audience. It is a little more technical, and may perhaps be appreciated more by someone familiar with biological understanding. It looks upon meditation from a biological standpoint.

    Ven. Webu Sayadaw: a talk by Patrick Given-Wilson

    Webu Sayadaw was important for two reasons. One was that in his time he became one of the most venerated monks in Burma; he was known as an arahant, a fully-liberated person. And the second reason is that he encouraged Sayagyi U Ba Khin, Goenkaji's teacher, to start teaching meditation without delay. For a householder to be encouraged by a monk of such standing, gave Sayagyi enormous status, prestige and backing in his work throughout his life.

    In this video, Patrick Given-Wilson explores this important relationship between Ven. Webu Sayadaw and Sayagyi U Ba Khin taking us through the significant life events of this inspiring monk who was known for giving all importance to diligent practice over scholastic achievement.

    "Come and See!" from <em>Realizing Change</em>

    “After finishing high school I was not sure what to study next. Philosophy was one of the possibilities, it seemed interesting, but I knew I did not really want to learn other people’s theories and thoughts, but rather how to live a good life myself. Wisdom was what I was looking for . . . .”

    In this final Realizing Change Dhamma podcast, Come and See!, meditators share stories confirming that the search for truth is a very personal journey. An ancient technique of meditation, Vipassana is as relevant now as in the past and the direct personal experience of one’s own inner reality, mind and body, as it changes moment to moment, is at the core of the practice.

    "One Truth - Vipassana, Science and Spirituality" from <em>Realizing Change</em>

    For the harmonious development of individuals and society, proper integration of science and Dhamma is essential, yet they are often perceived as irreconcilable. Dhamma for many people today has become identified with sectarian religions, ritual, community conflicts and a stubborn resistance to any logical scrutiny of beliefs. Science meanwhile is usually associated with thoroughgoing materialism—the view that matter is the only reality.

    In this month’s Dhamma podcast, One Truth - Vipassana, Science and Spirituality, we focus on how Vipassana elevates shared spiritual values over superficial differences, and points a way towards genuine understanding and reconciliation within and between diverse faiths, traditions, and science.
